Speed problem


Recommended Posts

I'm really at a loss… I have gone threw all the faqs and trouble shooting stuff I can find and utorrent will not download above dial-up type speeds. 57k is the highest it has gotten to.

This all started when I reformatted my computer. I downloaded utorrent and set it up the exact same way I did when I first used utorrent. It use to download at around 500k before the reformat.

I use the speed guide settings for 512k. I ran a speed test at DSL reports and it's not showing much slower than 512k. No other program that is internet dependant runs slow at all.

The network icon is green. The only error I get is unable to map UPnP port. I've tried disabling the UPnP port mapping settings and it dose not help.

I've turned off windows firewall and have not even installed any anti virus software on my computer yet.

I'm just at a total loss cause nothing has really changed from the first time I downloaded utorrent other than the reformat back to factory setup.

I do not use a router and did not have to do any kind of port forwarding or manual port set up when utorrent was working fine.

Win XP SP 2

Athlon 64 3400 2.2GHz

512 RAM

Dual hard drive 160GB / 200GB

512k Cable internet connection

On board Nvidia Nforce network controller Ethernet 10/100

Ummm... When I use to hover over the Utorrent icon in the system trey... my download rate use to always be around 480kB/s... Now I'm lucky if it gets over 20kB/s

My up speed looks higher now... around 40kB/s... I think it use to run around 20kB/s for the up speed.
